I can imagine it set in The Simpson's universe, with Homer Simpson replacing Bogart as as Marlow.
It is in the Simpson's universe. That's what made the book worth writing. It's like if Moe Szyslak and Barney Gumble were gay, and they framed Ralph Wiggum for murder. It's like if Mr. Burns were unemployed and liked child pornography.
You didn't know that such low people could actually exist and form a functional mass in the real world. That is why I thought it was a story that I had to record and tell. It is shocking that a place like Seminole County actually exists and such low people operate there. It's sort of a "Lord of the Flies" with adults.
I even have a passage "the lowest people on Earth
." Unfortunately I jammed all these passages together in six weeks, so none of them individually is as artful as I would like.
Often the passage of time is needed to gain perspective, and appreciate the historic nature of events, which at the time seemed almost nothing. The use of statements of Kaylee Simmons in a murder trial, and the money and the energy and the lives spent over statements that came from the mouth of one of the the most useless and unfortunate examples of 46 chromosomes ever created by God, and the weight they were given at the intersection of so many people's lives, is one of the lowest moments in recorded history.
Kaylee was a child sex-abuse victim and underage hooker, but somehow managed to attract interest from people with an even lower use for her. She went from being used by some old guy in her family, to being used by strangers in motel rooms, but that wasn't the bottom. Then she met the government employees of Seminole County, and that was the bottom. That is as low as a person can go, the most a human being can be demeaned at least in the United States.
At some point in 2019, Mandi's lawyers asked for the recorded phone calls of Kaylee Simmons. I guess the State Attorney's office was angry about it. Because while the state is obligated to provide them, the statements of Kaylee Simmons are beneath anyone wasting their time on, other than for those patronized rubes on the jury to take the life of another brain-damaged tramp. It is beneath the importance of the crude mammals that work in the state attorney's office to bother with the phone calls of Kaylee Simmons.
I remember the day some mediocre woman came behind me in Seminole courtroom 5D, to yap with displeasure over Mandi Jackson's lawyers requesting the recorded statements of Kaylee Simmons. Going to that courtroom, and witnessing an adult female employed by the taxpayer, expend such calories over nonsense statements with no bearing on reality of half-retard Kaylee Simmons, is lower than going to the zoo. Going to that courtroom, and observing such low behavior of a woman concerning her day with the statements of Kaylee Simmons, is like watching cows eat grass from an airplane.
Committing crimes against young girls like Mandi Jackson is as common as rain in human history. But there is always some rational incentive, whether sexual, or the general incentives of war. And the pursuit of common incentives such as kidnap and rape, was weighed against the risk of being burned alive. Coercing nonsense statements from a half-retard to keep a sick fat girl locked in a box, for no incentive but only from being dumb as bricks and evil, I believe is a unique event. Committing this against a young girl Mandi Jackson for no incentive worth recording but only stupidity, is an aberration in human history, a new low point.
It is well suited to the participants. For some people, winning a football game in high school was a high point. For some people, getting a job feeding monkeys at the zoo is a high point. For people like Mira Berry, who really did nothing for Kaylee Simmons who was left to fend for herself, being a bystanding stooge for the coercion of perjury from and against indigent incompetents, is probably the high point of a life and career.
